Follow California primary results with The Times

The Times has created an interactive page to follow the California primary elections Tuesday. A map is designed as a cartogram, with each square representing one political district. The map, designed by Thomas Suh Lauder, is designed to better represent the true population breakdown of the state.

"A typical map of California tends to overemphasize sparsely populated areas away from the coast," said Times database producer Ben Welsh. "This map is designed to emphasize where the population is, where the most people live, while still maintaining the state's general shape."

The Times' Anthony York has assembled a cheat sheet of races to watch.

As results come in Tuesday night, The Times' California political blog will have full coverage, including video chats from Sacramento.

David Lazarus will be hosting live video discussions on the primary and primary returns with Anthony York in Sacramento.  The video discussions – viewable on the latimes.com homepage and the PolitiCal blog – will be held every half hour starting at 7:30 p.m.

Readers will be able to pose questions to Lazarus and York by commenting on the blog post, using the Twitter hashtag #asklatimes, or commenting on the Times Facebook and Google Plus pages.
